NYC’s Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio was lampooned in a banner mounted on a highway overpass in Staten Island, New York. The massive mural depicts the anti-police de Blasio triumphantly holding the severed head of Lady Liberty as his city burns and devolves into a crime-infested hellhole.

In the banner, de Blasio sports a sinister smile while wearing a shirt bearing the photo of Marxist thug Che Guevara.
The banner was displayed in Staten Island, the lone Republican stronghold among New York City’s five boroughs.
Not surprisingly, the GOP-dominated Staten Island is the only borough in NYC where Marxist Black Lives Matter agitators have not rioted or looted.

The anti-de Blasio banner is similar to the anti-Cuomo banner that hung on a highway overpass in Upstate New York in May.
The ominous words “Cuomo Killed My Mom” were scrawled in red across the sheet. It was a reference to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s disastrous decision to force nursing homes to take coronavirus patients.
Shortly afterward, 6,500 senior citizens died of COVID-19.
Bill de Blasio’s once-middling popularity has cratered this summer, after his catastrophic push to defund the police caused violent crimes to skyrocket across New York, especially in low-income, black neighborhoods.
Scott LoBaido is the artist who created the Lady Liberty banner. He said he and other New Yorkers are disgusted that de Blasio’s calamitous policies are destroying their city.
“It’s what he’s doing to New York, he’s severing the head of the greatest city on Earth,” LoBaido told the New York Post. “New York has turned into a sh—hole because of this guy. He hates the true New Yorkers – police officers, firefighters … and the people who built this city.”
LoBaido said Bill de Blasio has encouraged the demonization of police, causing an unprecedented crime wave across New York City.
“That thin blue line separates anarchy from civilization,” LoBaido underscored.

Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-New York) is disgusted at de Blasio’s destructive policies and rhetoric. Zeldin warns that NYC won’t survive his tenure, which ends in 2021.
Zeldin tweeted: “Mayor de Blasio is destroying our great city from the inside out. New York City will not make it through the remainder of his term. He needs to be immediately removed from office to save the city and protect the people who live there!”

Congressman Zeldin says de Blasio is undoing all the good that NYC’s former mayor, Republican Rudy Giuliani, did when he cleaned up the streets and eradicated crime in the city.
“I love New York City,” Zeldin told Fox News. “[Democrat] Mayor David Dinkins left and then you had Rudy Giuliani come in. You saw the crime rates go down, the economy flourishing, the potential being reached. Here we are again. It’s at a crossroads.”
Zeldin continued: “This is a tale of two cities [Democrat and Republican]: You have the direction that New York City can be filled with opportunity, it can be filled with law and order, safety and security, peace and prosperity. Or it’ll be this direction that Bill de Blasio is taking it down, which is chaos, lawlessness, poverty and a lack of opportunity. So I really believe he has to be removed. The city won’t survive him staying in for the remainder of his term.”

Lee Zeldin echoed the sentiments of millions of New Yorkers, who are united in their opposition to de Blasio’s feckless leadership.
“I’m sure that if you were to poll people who live in and around New York City, you will find that it’s not just Republicans — it’s independents, it’s Democrats — they want a different direction,” Congressman Zeldin said. “De Blasio’s numbers have to be completely in the tank right now.”
DO THEY LOOK HUNGRY? @AOC
blames the explosion of violence in NYC on people just "shoplifting" for their "hungry families". This shooting happened in #Brooklyn on Tuesday in the @NYPD75Pct confines.

Amazingly, Mayor de Blasio vowed to sue if President Trump intervenes to stop the crime wave that’s afflicting mostly black neighborhoods across New York.
While de Blasio paints meaningless street graffiti and chants the hollow words that “Black Lives Matter,” in reality, it is black lives that are being lost during NYC’s crime wave.
Guess he wants more violence.
